Great hands on museum! Really like the layout out as it is compact with plenty of items to see. The staff is wonderful and really take pride in the museum. We spent about 2 hours here and it was just enough time for a 10 and 12 year old.

Excellent place. Just give yourself enough time to go through it all. Far better than walking the streets going in and out of over priced shops.

Loved the museum and the docent (Tom), spent a couple of hours there and would love to return. So happy there was a Groupon for this activity or we might have missed is truly a treasure!

Allow about an hour or so Hidden gem of Lake Geneva

This is an excellent small museum with plenty of Lake Geneva, and even Chicago, history. The guides were very friendly and provided lots of information....we learned a lot! The kids really enjoyed being able to touch the artifacts while learning about them. Highly recommend a visit while exploring Lake Geneva and surroundings!

From Our Editors

Situated inside the historic Power & Light building, the Geneva Lake Museum replicates Lake Geneva's Main Street from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inside the museum, visitors stroll around admiring the turn-of-the-century Georgian and Italianate architecture that forms historic stores, a school room, and a 1920s dental workstation, among other spaces. Guests may walk into the rooms themselves and closely examine old-fashioned farm implements, a telephone switchboard, or Potawatami tools and arrowheads. Beyond Main Street, museum visitors can study up on Frank Lloyd Wright's Hotel Geneva or the Chicago & North Western Railway. Sightseers can also explore Lake Geneva, the city's namesake and a 7.6-mile body of water that empties into the White River. The lake is surrounded by a 23-mile public path, which makes the area attractive to Midwesterners who want to take a scenic day trip or ducks that want to train for a marathon.
